This cute double-decker Birthday Cookie is so simple to make, decorate and customize with a personal message. All you need to make it is cookie dough, royal icing and an edible ink marker.
When it came to cutting the parts for the cookie, I used a knife and cut them freehand. I cut a large 6-inch square for the base and for the candle, a thin strip of dough and a teardrop shape for the flame.

Here's how I decorated and assembled the cookie:
|Outline and flood the base cookie with royal icing and set it aside to dry completely.|
|Then just use an edible ink marker to write a birthday greeting and that's all there is to it.|
